National Teaching Fellowship Winner - Mike Winstanley
MIKE WINSTANLEY (HISTORY) HAS WON A NATIONAL TEACHING FELLOWSHIP. This means that Lancaster has been successful in each of the three years of the scheme, which is part of HEFCE's initiatives to raise the profile of teaching in universities. There are only four other universities who have won fellowships in each of the years: Birmingham, Manchester, Plymouth and Teesside. This year three historians have been successful - the first time a discipline has scooped so many of the fellowships. Ex Lancaster history student Alan Booth (Nottingham) was also a winner and Paul Hyland who graduated from Lancaster in History won the award in 2000. The awards are worth £50,000 over three years and Mike intends to use his to explore the use of archival resources for local history with his students.
